solved it for my purposes :-)
but I haven't found a reason why it happened.
I found out, that i forgot to clear the file /etc/default/useradd.
Due to this the following line seemed to do make the problems in there:
So users were added to these secondary groups as well.
I removed this line and everything worked fine again.
No file seems to be corrupt.
After that to make it complete in removed all users accidently added to that groups - they shouldn't have been int these groups anyway - silly me.
Still I wonder why that silly thing occured to me.
Seems there ist some kind of limit for a line in /etc/group... or something else similar.
the line of each group ind /etc/group was filled with approx. 400 users - just in case anyone wants to check IF theres really some kinda limit.
I dont want to make any further tests...this was enough action for today :-)
Anyway, thanks for allyour thoughts :-)
